  • The names of many creatures in Israeli zoos are preceded with "Palestine" or "Palestinian" and nobody complains. The Palestinian Sunbird is the English name most commonly associated with the ...
  • Whoops. Just discovered one can get rid of that nag window in Lightroom Preferences. Just head east on the list and click on Lightroom Mobile, then Delete All Data.
  • I've got that damn nag window on my registered LR 6, too. I am resolutely ignoring it.
  • I have the same combination, a F* 300 f4.5 and a HD 1.4x teleconverter, and like it very much. It does well for me handheld at shutter speeds of about 1/1000 second. Your photograph, in my view is ...
  • I missed that! Thanks for setting me straight.
  • Just yesterday I used Creative Cloud to download LR 6.0 standalone and install it. You don't have to worry that Creative Cloud will make you use LR in the cloud. Seems that 6.0 is the last LR that ...
  • Terrific photos, Arjit! Terrific birds, too!
  • "A while ago I know Canon invited a member of sales staff from the camera department of all future shops to a seminar in Toronto. Paid their way, expenses and sent them all home with a new Rebel." ...
  • Yes, the combination autofocused, and very briskly. It has autofocused similarly well in overcast conditions. I have not yet tried it in deep shadow.
  • Andrew, thank you. Yes, if I look at the area around the dog long enough, the phenomenon you mention becomes apparent. I'll try kicking up the contrast in Lightroom.
  • Andrew, thanks. I didn't know that old lenses showed evidence that they were designed for film. What should I be looking for? I think the F* 300 goes for $900-$1100 depending on condition.
  • K-3, F*300 f4.5 with HD 1.4 x teleconverter, ISO 400, handheld I'm posting this chiefly to show my pleasure with the above lens combination on a K-3. The crop is about 50 per cent of the original. ...
  • I tried Photos because it automatically was included with OS X 10.10.3, found it crap, and tried to remove it—and was huffily informed that it is part of the OS and can't be removed. More useless ...
  • Replied in James...
    It was a bright and sunny CAVU day today, so I put the 1.4x converter through its paces with the Sigma 18-250 again, hoping the combination might work better in ideal conditions. Nope, as all the ...
  • Replied in James...
    I think that when all is said and done, I will be using the teleconverter primarily with my F" 300 f4.5 and my 90mm Tamron macro, and once in a while with the 55-300, especially while traveling ...
  • Replied in James...
    My new HD 1.4x converter arrived today and I quick gave three lenses a try with it. It is a "bright" overcast day. No sun. No shadows. F* 300 f4.5 worked fine without hunting. Immediate AF lock-on. ...
  • Excuse me if this subject has been discussed before—the search engine on DPReview doesn't make it easy to find out—but I'm trying to find out if a F* 300mm f4.5 will work with the new 1.4x ...
  • Since my first Pentax back in the 1970s, probably upwards of $20,000, but I never tallied it because I have an agreement with my wife: I don't tell her what I spend on camera equipment and she ...
  • Well done x2! My only even halfway negative comment is that it helps give scale to those majestic rocks to have a person in the photograph. That is easier said than done, especially when shooting ...
  • I too vote for Image 1 as the better one.
